Navigating the Rapid Recovery Core Console

Navigating the Rapid Recovery Core Console

When you log into the Core Console, and any time you click the Home [Home] icon, the Home page appears. The Home page gives you a view of your Rapid Recovery Core, with two options. In the main viewing area, the default content is the new Core dashboard, which displays a set of real-time reports on your system. Default dashboard reports include recent transfer job status, per machine transfer, a repository overview, and connectivity state for protected, replicated, and recovery points-only machines. Or you can switch to the classic Summary Tables view. In this view, the title of the page shows the display name of your Rapid Recovery Core, and you can see summary tables showing protected machines, repositories, and recent alerts. For more information, see Understanding the Home page (summary tables view) and Understanding the Core dashboard, respectively.

On the Home page (and on every page in the Core Console), the left navigation area shows the items that are protected on your Core. You can navigate to other pages in the UI by doing one of the following:

Expanding the [More] (More) menu on the icon bar, and then selecting a destination

When you select an item from the left navigation area, the focus of the Core Console changes to display summary information about that item. For example, if you click the name of a protected machine, the Core console displays information about that machine only, rather than the Core. In this example, the display name of the protected machine appears as the title of the page. A submenu appears to the right, letting you view specific information about the protected machine. The menu options include: Summary, Recovery Points, Events, Settings, Reports, and More.

To return to viewing information about the Core, including dashboard reports, or a summary view of multiple protected or replicated machines, click on the Home [Home] icon on the top left of the UI. On the Home page, you can toggle between the dashboard view and the summary page view by clicking the red link at the top right of the page.

You can use the title at the top of the Core Console to provide context for the information you are viewing in the Core. For example:

For information about the features and functions available from each page, see the appropriate section below.

For more information about viewing protected machines, see Viewing the Protected Machines menu. For more information on managing protected machines, see Managing protected machines.

For more information about viewing replicated machines, see Viewing incoming and outgoing replication.

For more information about viewing recovery-points only machines, see Viewing the Recovery Points Only menu

Understanding the left navigation area

The left navigation area of the Core Console appears on the left side of that user interface. The contents of this navigation area may differ based on the type of objects protected in your Rapid Recovery Core.

The left navigation area always contains the following:

Icon bar. For navigation among the main pages of the Core Console.
Text filter. The text filter is a text field that lets you filter the items displayed in the various menus that appear below it. Clicking the arrow to the right of the text filter expands and collapses each of the menus appearing below it.

Following these elements, the left navigation area typically displays menus to help you navigate, filter, and view the objects protected on your Core. This includes protected machines, replicated machines, and so on.

Each menu is context-sensitive; that is, each menu only appears in the Core Console if it is relevant. For example, if you protect at least one machine, the Protected Machines menu appears, and so on.

For more information, see the left navigation area tables in Viewing the Core Console user interface.

Viewing the Rapid Recovery Core Console Home page

Viewing the Rapid Recovery Core Console Home page

Each time you log into the Rapid Recovery Core Console, or each time you click on the Home [Home] icon in the icon bar, the Home page appears.

The Home page of the Core Console offers a new dashboard view, and the familiar summary tables view. The dashboard is the default view.

You can toggle between views on the Home page by clicking the red link at the top right of the Home page.

From the Home page, and every other page of the Core Console, you can navigate to the functions you want by using the left navigation area.
